Adaptive traffic signals cut travel time by 25% on Henderson road

After a successful test run, officials are giving adaptive traffic signals on a stretch of Eastern Avenue in Henderson the green light. The pilot program that ended last month saw travel time on the 3.6-mile stretch, from Beckler Drive (near Sunridge Heights Parkway) to Pebble Road, drop 25 percent.

The grand work-from-home experiment of the past year is giving way to a massive reconfiguration of real estate.
